Leader: John McCausland

Wednesdays, 1:30 – 3:30 PM | Oct 4 and Nov 1 @ Henniker Tucker Free Library

This discussion group meets throughout the year, on the first Wednesday of each month. We are discussing books selected from Britain’s prestigious Booker Prize lists: works written in English and published in the UK or Ireland, formerly by Commonwealth authors but now open globally. New members are welcome to join this on-going group any time. The November work will be Irish author J.G. Farrell’s Troubles, part of his Empire trilogy about the crumbling of the British Empire.

The group meets monthly on the first Wednesday afternoon, gathered  informally in the reading room of the Henniker library to share reactions to the works read, and to connect their themes to issues in our lives and in the world today. New members are always welcome to enjoy discussions that bring us into deeper appreciation of the novels we read.

John McCausland has taught LINEC courses on the Bible, Chaucer, and the American novel. An Episcopal priest and one-time lawyer, he loves history, literature, theology, teaching, and learning.
